The Bertha Lions and Lioness Club will meet on February 23 at the Lions Building at 7 p.m. Individuals who desire to become members of this public improvement organization are invited to attend. The busy meeting of January 26 opened with a delicious Valentine's dinner served by Beth Selvey and Jean Shaw. Even though it was pre-Valentine’s it was enjoyed. They voted to contribute funds to worthy causes: $400 was contributed to the Bertha-Hewitt Grad Bash, $100 to Kamp Kace, a camp for cancer victims, and $100 to the Bertha Community Chest.
